of assault rifles. in the past both men have been strong advocates of the nra. joining us tonight is josh horowitz, executive director of the coalition to stop gun violence and eric pratt, director of communications for gun owners of america. eric, let me start with you. what is your organization's response to the tragedy in connecticut? >> well, certainly our heart goes out to the families of the victims. i can definitely relate with what they're going through. i myself lost a child through a drowning accident and so i totally understand the angst and pain they're going through, but i would say what the senators are talking about and the politicians are talking about in going after the firearms and banning these or placing more restrictions is not going to make people more safe. in fact, what we have, we've tried this approach over and over. if you look over the last couple decades, almost all except for one of the mass murders that have occurred in this country, they've happened in these gun free zones because good people are scared to defend themselves. on the other hand, in places, th

level, i'm casually optimistic. >> to that point, josh, you made the point that you closed your books today, so, a lot of players are, in fact, on the sidelines officially for 2012. >> right. other than a handful of tax related things, there's nothing that we feel compelled to do, given the fact it's what we call garbage time right now. the outcome of the year is already known. people trading heavily are the people that are forced to. and so you tend to see this odd mix of stocks start to bubble up in the last week, typically low volume, high beta, things that can be juiced. it's just not a game that we play on the asset management side. >> i agree with josh. and the things we know right now are, number one, we know the president's coming back and he's coming back because they are facing some very dire choices right now. i do think anthony's right. we're going to be driving off this cliff. it's not going to be a drop, you know, of thousands of feet or anything like that. this will be like going off a very high curb, in other words, we're going to fall and the car is going to feel it,

to you, josh. this controversial new bill banning u.s. citizens from adopting russian children is igniting a firestorm among human rights activists, saying this law victimizes children to make a political point. now, the u.s. is the biggest destination for adopted russian children. some 60,000 of them have been given homes by americans since the fall of the soviet union. what's more heart breaking, there's nearly 52 children in the process of being adopted by american families right now. in some cases, families who have been waiting years to complete the adoption process. so, this new law will now block those kids from leaving russia. meaning, they will not be coming to the u.s. and given a new home. and so far, the u.s. has not responded. josh? >> thank you. amy? >> heartbreaking story there, josh. >>> we do have breaking weather news, though. much of the country under a blanket of snow. and sam's telling us, there's more snow on the way. >> watching this storm develop this morning, amy. good morning, everybody. 64% of the country now has the white stuff on the ground. let's s

so much. welcome to "halftime." traders are mike murphy, joe terranova, josh brown and steven weiss. lots to talk about. we'll start with the fiscal cliff and stock market. stoc stoc stocks paring their gains just a bit. amid reports in washington talks on the fiscal cliff have taken a positive turn. steve weis, market seems to be anticipating a deal. >> all we've done is ratchet up the now if there is no deal or it's an ugly looking deal we've got much more risk in the market. because the market is assuming that a deal will happen. it's assuming we won't go off the cliff. if you take what boehner just said, to me it's actually good news that the market didn't really respond. because it's negotiation as usual. boehner was really only talking about the cost cuts that he's looking for from obama. obama's just trying to negotiate. so i don't even know why he spoke today. maybe to throw some cold water on the notion or maybe throw hope. we don't know. the point is ignore the headlines. let's just -- just invest for longer term. >> josh, what do you make of the 100-point move we're seein
